Phew! I think the worst part of our remodeling adventure is behind us. Most of the dust, chaos and loud noise has already happened. The exterior is almost finished. The new front porch is complete. The 3rd floor dormer has been built. Take a peek:
Now we're moving on to my favorite part - the design phase for our new 3rd floor bathroom! I've been having fun picking out materials over at our local green building supply store - Natural Built Home.
The bathroom vanity is custom designed from FSC-certified alder wood with a low VOC finish and is formaldehyde-free. On top of the vanity will be a Paperstone countertop with a backsplash of the pretty, recycled glass Blazestone tiles you see below:
The shower will be tiled in Travertine stone (below) with a border of the Blazestone tiles around the middle.
We've also picked out a dual flush toilet, we're putting in radiant in-floor heating and we've insulated the hell out of the walls.
It's going to be awhile before this project is done (big sigh!) but I can hardly wait to show you the end result!
Do you have any tips for creating a greener, healthier bathroom?
